Drink driver is banned for a year
A MOUNT Carmel Avenue man was put off the road for one year when he was convicted of drunken driving at last week’s sitting of Wicklow District Court.
Darren Franey, Mount Carmel Avenue, Wicklow was charged with committing the offence at Kilboy, Kilbride on August 6, 2008.
He pleaded guilty to the charge and the court heard Franey had a urine alcohol concentration of 128mg of alcohol per 100ml of urine.
Judge Murrough Connellan then fined him €250 and put him off the road for one year. He postponed the ban until March 1, 2009 to allow Franey get his affairs in order.
